Hello! I’m back and blowing the dust off this blog! Sorry it’s been so long. Life well and truly got in the way! I hope you are all well?!
I’ve seen a few of these ladybird invites around and wanted to have a go at making some. They are very cute and perfect for a summer party. (I’ve been very minimal and haven’t put any eyes on mine – but it would be easy to glue some wobbly eyes on if you wanted to).
I also thought this would make a great 30 minute craft project for young children so I’ve made a colour-in version that you can print off.
I hope you are all having a lovely summer. We are basking in the sunshine in the UK at the moment which is lovely!
Hello! I made some fruit gift boxes and bunting ages ago and thought the design could be transferred to these note cards. The note cards are pretty cool and fold up in the same way the heart notes do.
I’m in love with the triangular envelopes so watch out for a related post soon!
If you fancy having a go them the templates are at the foot of the post as usual. Long live snail mail! Yay!
Hello all! Please excuse the tumbleweeds that have been blowing through this blog lately. Life keeps getting in the way!
It’s the Easter holidays in the UK and like most parents I’m scratching around trying to find something for my kids to do. If you need some inpiration then have a look at Made by Joel. It’s jam packed full of ideas.
Check out this beautifully simple Branch Trees playset.
Good at sewing? You could make this DIY doll diaper with fabric poo!
Get your woodwork on and made a Small catapult toy.
Addicted yet? If so you can see more in Joel’s book, Made to Play.
Have a wonderful Easter everyone.
Hello! Last year I made some ‘origami bunny’ chocolate bar wrappers and I thought the bunny would look nice on these treat boxes. The design is really minimal and suitable for kids and grown-ups.
If you want to make a real origami bunny then check out this post at howaboutorange.
Are you making anything for Easter? If so do tell!
The sun has finally started shining in the UK after a long, wet winter. I’m already in the mood for summer and have been working on some geometric icosahedron ice creams! Can’t wait to show you them in a week or so. Until then, happy crafting!
